    Hi SuryHappy to post the original but I am at an airport leaving on vacation and will not have access to my computer for several weeks. I don't know if it will help but the fourth image is of the same vessel and was taken just a short time before the mono image. OssieStatistics: Posted […]

Sony A7RII versus Nikon D850 – noise

There’s a lot of noise about the Nikon D850 right now but few direct comparisons. One problem I have with some early reports is that new D850 owners are most likely to be existing D810 or perhaps D750 or D5 owners. Any comparisons are therefore being made with earlier Nikon sensors.

A7RII versus Pentax 645Z

At a workshop given by John Denton for The Flash Centre, with Elinchrom lighting and Pentax 645Z demonstration. model Laura posed for a comparison pair of shots using the Pentax with 90mm macro lens and the A7RII equipped I regret to say with a much inferior lens, the basic 28-70mm.

David and Goliath? Nikon D4 dwarfs NEX-7!

Nikon D4 with 28-300mm VR, Sony NEX-7 with Tamron 18-200mm

Side by side on my light table (which collapses with a ‘pop’ when sixteen tons of Nikon is placed on it), and the NEX-7 is given the foreground role to avoid any accusations of using perspective to make it look tiddly.

I’m writing some reviews of the Nikon and other new professional DSLRs for . . . → Read More: David and Goliath? Nikon D4 dwarfs NEX-7!

Minolta 70-210mm f4 versus Canon 70-200mm f4 L IS

The Canon 5D MkIII arrived, but I will not be reporting on that here – it is with me for a British Journal review, and that will take a little time and will also be exclusive to the BJP in print and on iPad App. So no sneak preview anywhere else!

However, with the camera . . . → Read More: Minolta 70-210mm f4 versus Canon 70-200mm f4 L IS

Crop or cram? Pixel density versus the big view…

The Alpha 900 offers an unrivalled view through its 100% prism finder. The extra brightness, as well as the size and clarity, make most subjects far easier to photograph well. For some users, however, the full frame camera brings a disadvantage in terms of reach and resolution. You need lenses 50% longer (and thus twice . . . → Read More: Crop or cram?

Sony 70-400mm vs Minolta 400mm f/4.5

Gustav Kiburg has done an extensive test between these two lenses, posted in a Dyxum.com forum thread:

Sony Alpha 900 and Nikon D3X raw file noise comparison

Like Mike Johnston writing in The On-Line Photographer, I’m aware that any attempt to line up one or more cameras and show comparison images or make judgements is on to a loser from the start. And any webmaster who puts an external link in the first half dozen words of a new post is losing . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 900 and Nikon D3X raw file noise comparison

Studio comparison A900, 5DMkII, D3X

This set of full size shots was taken with the still life left set up, because the Nikon and Canon cameras were not here at the same time. It compares the A900, 5DMkII and D3X using the converters supplied by the makers – Image Data Converter SR2, Digital Photo Professional, and Capture NX2.
